Authorization Workshop

Correctly assigned access rights are one of the most important prerequisites for data security! For example, "unauthorized access led to 2014 security incidents ranking," outperforming "due to malicious code attacks," according to an IBM study on cyberattacks (*). But efficiency also suffers and companies incur further costs, When employees in confusing, wrongful structures spend an average of 30 - 60 minutes searching for files every day or work with the wrong data.

There are clear requirements, meaningful best practice guidelines from Microsoft and now finally suitable tools for the comfortable assignment and Maintenance of authorizations, Nevertheless, we encounter the same problems over and over again in our daily work: users with full rights, users who are not authorized and entitled, user accounts of employees who have long since left the company, missing list authorizations and also "Everyone" permissions on the system folder ,


If you are not sure whether your permissions are really sufficient for your security needs, then you should take a look at our workshop on file server permissions.

Together with you, we work out a tailor-made approach in your environment that describes your requirements for clean access rights.

    Excellent workshop with many tips, tricks and tricks to implement a clear authorization structure.
    We purchased the software in advance and were able to analyze the existing system and make preparations for the migration directly at the workshop. There were no questions left unanswered.
    For us, there is no better software to eliminate legacy AD and directory structure, to create new users and directories with correct permissions and at the same time to get a proper documentation of work done.

    Highly recommended!

    It was a very informative workshop with lots of tips and a lot of know-how. In conversation, the existing environment was analyzed and various weaknesses identified. Based on the experiences of Mr. Gomell, already planned strategies were considered and new strategies developed.

    This workshop is worthwhile for every admin working with file servers.
